Travel Health & Vaccinations
If you’re planning to travel, it’s important to arrange your travel vaccination appointment early. We will also provide general travel health advice and prescriptions for prophylactic medications (e.g. Malaria Prophylaxis) if necessary. Illnesses may be caused by contaminated food or water, poor personal hygiene or infected insects.
Whether you’re looking for a particular travel vaccine or you would like to consult us about an upcoming trip, we can advise you on the appropriate vaccinations, administer the vaccines and also advise which medications might be useful to bring as a precaution.
Please allow time before your trip for this consultation, as you may need to return for vaccination if we need to order the specific vaccines. Complete the Travel Consultation Form once you have made your appointment.
Common vaccines required for travel throughout Asia, Africa and America include Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Tetanus, Diphtheria and Polio. Many vaccines must be given at least two weeks before travel. Some must be given even sooner, so please contact us as soon as possible.
